Clim­ber falls on Mt Bar­ney

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

A ROCK clim­ber yes­ter­day fell hun­dreds of me­tres down Mount Bar­ney, 90km south­west of Bris­bane.

The man was one of three peo­ple scal­ing the eastern cliff face when he fell about 1pm.

Po­lice and a res­cue he­li­copter were scram­bled to help find the miss­ing clim­ber. It’s un­clear how the dis­as­ter un­folded but po­lice were com­mu­ni­cat­ing with the other two climbers on the cliff, who were un­able to see their friend.

A po­lice search and res­cue co-or­di­na­tor was man­ag­ing the scene last night.
